Do you hate some character voicing in the anime? Who is it and why do you hate it? It can be English subbed or dubbed voicing.

As for me, Dawn's voicing kind of puts me off sometimes. I don't know why really.

EDIT: In the Pokemon anime only!

Dawn is kinda irritating...

But for me, it's gotta be *murdered repeatedly* Misty, Ash pre-Hoenn, and Gary. Gary's especially.

None of them, really. I know loads of people, and their irritating voices sort of stopped being irritating.

I hate Gary's Latin American voice, and Meowth's English voice, Salamence's English voice and Mysty's Sisters' voices. Especially Meowth's and Misty's Sisters'.

English voices: Ash's pre-Hoenn, Gary's, Meowth's, Brock's after Hoenn and Morisson's.
Japanese: Meowth's, Brock's

I can't stand Brock's current voice. I cringe when he speaks. Dawn and Ash also have moments that make me want to turn off the TV. Jessie's current voice isn't powerful enough for me and James' could be so much better. Sorry for being so negative but since the voices changed, they've always irritated me at certain points.

Pretty much everybody's voice is terrible. Especially Brock, Dawn, and Ash. No to mention Gary. Did I say Dawn yet?

Yeah. I know I'm being negative, but they have terrible voice actors at the moment. I like the old ones a lot better.

I'll have to agree with most people here, Dawn's voice (English dub) is really irritating. And yeah Meowth's (Jap) voice doesn't sound pretty good either.

Meowth's and Jessie's Japanese voices are really annoying, imo. And in English, I went from LOVING James' voice (Eric Stuart) to hating his voice the most on the entire show (Jimmy Zoppi). -_- To me at least, he does a horrible job of even sounding a bit like the previous voice. At least (imo again) Ash and Brock sound pretty similar to their previous VA's, and even Jessie's new VA isn't THAT horrible.

The rest of them don't bother me that much. I guess Gary has a pretty annoying English voice too.

I think all of them after hoenn are annoying.

But hey your talking to a person who started off playing Advanced Generation games. Emerald being my first.

but anime wise you cant beat may =P and max was a nice tag along.

The PUSA dub has done a good job with the voices over the years. I have gotten used to them. However, Team Rocket's PUSA voices are annoying, especially James and Meowth. Jessie's voice is high-pitched and squeaky many times, if you know what I mean, but it's tolerable. James's voice is horrible, and I can't stand Meowth's voice either (keep in mind, I'm talking about the PUSA voices). Add that to the fact that TR's dialogue is rhyming most of the time.

Piplup's voice isn't that great either, and I hate how it thinks it's Dawn's best Pokemon. The ego has to come down big time.

Dawn and post-Hoenn Ash. Sarah Natochenny isn't a good enough voice actress to voice a male character. Veronica Taylor's May was pretty bad too.

Dawn's voice is irritating, but not as bad as Oak's voice. I never listen to what he says.

Dawn's voice it irritating. Ash's new voice is ridiculous aswell.

I honestly can't think of any that I hate outright. The main cast's new voices have grown on me, at least the "twerps" have. Rocket still sounds creaky to me and honestly, I don't think there will ever be a replacement for Blaustein's Meowth. Not a fan of Zoppi's Oak, as much as I was Hart's, either.

Actually it seems like a bunch of it stems from Jimmy Zoppi (who does subpar Oak, Meowth, and James). I like his Gary but these three just seem tepid.

I started watching the English version of this show again a short while back, and it seems to me the voice actor for Ash and or Brock changed. I mean, it's been a while since I watched the show, but they seem noticeably deeper. I was going to start a new thread, but then I noticed this one. But anyway, did the voice actors change at some point in the series or not?

Misty, Morrison (that kid who god knows how got into the hoenn league and declared himself Ash's rival), and Meowth. I hate Ursula and Harley as well

The dubbing company changed from 4Kids to PUSA/TPCI after season 8, so from Battle Frontier onwards most of the characters have new voice actors.

Arceus' voice annoyed me, as well as Lugia's slightly.

Mewtwo's was cool though.

I haven't heard enough of the newer voices, so I won't say anything about those.
I outright hated only one voice.

Gary.

Guess who keeps his old voice in the new dub?
I guess I'm weird, I love Meowth's Japanese voice...

the voice of a middle-aged woman with a heavy smoking habit does not suit a ten year old boy maybe its just me but it's far from cute

Mine would have to always be Dawn, her voice just irritates me a lot.
I've disliked her from the start

Eep, a lot of the dub voices annoy me :/
Dawn's really bugs me!

And... Gary's... omg...

But the majority of them are very mediocre :v

You posting this here because if you did so in Bulba you'd be banned? >__>

Initially, I hated Ash's voice, but I grew to like it with time. And it improved notably. I also didn't have a good side for Brock's first voice, and I actually like his second voice actor. Just a personal preference situation complex. That's about it. I'm neutral with anything else.

Ash's new voice :X may & max as well. Oh I almost forgot about meowth. Hasn't he had like 8 actors since the show started?

The voices in Dutch aren't really that great...

Piplup, May (TPCI dub)
And... All voices = unbearable in Battle Frontier (dub, of course).

Yea, and now his voice actor voices James and Meowth and Prof. Oak too, which makes four characters with his awful voice. Gary was bad enough.

Are we talking current Ash or the original? Because I'm not certain about Taylor's status as a smoker, and Natochenny is far from middle-aged... she's younger than I am.

I'm actually surprised to see so much hate for Piplup. I love Piplup's voice :D

I've always seemed to hate Ash's voice, no matter who did it and in what season. In the rare event that I actually watch the anime, I always have to watch with the sound muted.

Pikachu and Piplup annoy me as well, and sadly neither one is probably gonna evolve :/

I HATE Prof. Oak's voice haha and I really don't like the new voices for Jesse and James. And Brock's is really annoying too haha

I don't like any of the new voices that much really.

the voices for Ash, Brock, James and Mewoth in particular are very annoying.

The old ones were much better, probably because those are the voices i grew up with, i did start watching the show right back when it all started at back in 99 afterall.

Zoppi's James gets a bit irritating in long bursts, but it's close to my father's impression of Stuart's James, so it's not too bad.

Rachael Lillis' Pikachu sounds nothing like Ikue, but it's not heard often, so I'll let her off. (After-all she did do an excellent job of making Misty sound nothing like Jessie)

I recall disliking Giovanni's PUSA voice in that the 1 episode it was in. - heard him again, and he's actually pretty good.

I think most people dislike Zoppi's Prof. Oak, and I can say I am included in that group.

Morrison was intensely irritating, and that's coming from someone who is well familiar with King Kai.

But I think we can all agree that the worst voice in the history of either dub was the guy with the Electabuzz who fought Morrison in the Hoenn League. That was a hard match to watch given that both trainers had grating voices.

I hate May's voice. That's one of the main reasons I find her annoying.

I also hate Casey's voice, I'm glad she doesn't appear in the anime anymore.

Definitely.

That was a horrible horrible match to have to listen to...
At least I sorta liked Morrison. The other guy had an extremely irritating personality as well as a horrible voice.

Oh dear lord, I want to punch Gary's voice. (not the voice actor, the voice).

AliceBlaze
September 8th, 2010, 07:25 AM
Is Gary supposed to be ten years old during the first episode? Because like most ten year old boys in the anime, he sounds too old to be ten.

Aquacorde
September 8th, 2010, 08:32 AM
Heh. I don't even know.
But I also forgot about Dawn somehow. She bugs me...
And Misty when she's talking to Togepi. ARRG YOU DONT NEED TO TALK TO IT SHUT UP

dawn's voice does sound a little weird. it sounds like she is sick or has a cold or something.

i agree Brock's voice is better in the second one. I didn't like the change in ash's voice at first but after a while they kinda grow on you.

yeah gary is suppose to be ten cuz that is when he first got his starter pokemon.

casey? do i mean cassidy?

September 8th, 2010, 11:54 AM
Dawn's and May's voices by far. When they talk, they irritate me. I am referring to the English voicing.

No I meant Casey. She's a baseball fan that Ash and friends meet during the Johto series.

Ash's mum and May's voice. Not suprising as they are very similar.


I also dislike Brock's new voice. Decent but not a match on Eric Stuart's version.
